The 2016 NH Teacher of the Year is one of our own!

The New Hampshire Department of Education named Ashley Preston, preschool teacher at Parker-Varney Elementary School, the 2016 New Hampshire Teacher of the Year. Preston was chosen from a large group of talented and dedicated educators in the state. The selection committee recognized her ability to help her young students be curious, critical thinkers and problem solvers.

"Preschool students are often underestimated, and I feel fortunate that I can be their voice, help them gain the recognition they deserve, and prove their learning is valuable," Preston wrote in the application.


Preston has been teaching for nine years in Manchester. She looks at the whole child and sees the gains they made then finds ways to help them continue to grow and make progress.

"Ms. Preston is a natural educator," said Parker-Varney principal Amy Allen. "She teaches her students to strive for excellence, to love reading to care about one another."

Preston is New Hampshire's candidate for National Teacher of the Year.
